One of the best ways to preserve your pet’s overall health is to provide consistent dental hygiene. Newton County Animal Clinic offers dental exams, cleaning, polishing, and tooth extractions.
Dental care for pets is just as important as it is for people. Pets develop tartar and plaque deposits on their teeth if they do not receive routine care from a qualified veterinarian. Through regular cleaning, and checkups at Newton County Animal Clinic, and by following good oral hygiene habits at home, you can typically extend the life of your pet by several years.
We recommend regular dental checkups and cleanings at least every 1 to 2 years in most cases. Some pets, however, require more frequent cleanings. Brushing your pet’s teeth in between cleanings and supplying them with oral hygiene chews are additional preventive measures.
If you notice your pet exhibiting any of the following conditions, give us a call and schedule a dental care appointment:
- • Abnormal chewing, drooling, or dropping food from the mouth
- • Bad breath
- • Bleeding from the mouth
